our little warrior

While at a women's conference at Alicia's new church (the St Louis Vineyard) yesterday, Troy received his first prophetic words! A prophetic word is simply a word that someone receives from God to encourage and build up someone else (that's how I understand it, at least!) One of the conference facilitators (someone we had never met or talked to) called out Troy and said she got the words "warrior" and "gentleman" for him. That he would be a warrior for the Kingdom of God, but also for women (the gentleman part). Two things a mother loves to hear about her little boy! What made it even more awesome? Guess what the meaning of the name "Troy" is? Footsoldier (warrior). Awesome confirmation and so cool!

After the conference ended, Troy and I headed back to the hotel to relax with Mike for a few hours before dinner.

As Troy settled down for his evening nap, we headed out once again and went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner (yum!). One of Mike's colleagues (and an Olympian pole vaulter!) and his family joined us, as well as one of the other instructors from Mike's clinic this weekend. And now Troy has officially shared more meals with Olympic athletes in his first three months than I did in my first 25 years!
